Creative Writing

Winooski Recreation and Parks have teamed up with Winooski resident and creative writing expert, Aurora Hurd, to provide a fun and engaging creative writing course! 

This unique program is made available for two skill levels: teens (ages 15 - 17) and adults (18+). The goal of the class is to go over the basics of creative writing and how to use different aspects of writing craft to tell stories that are important to us. From constructing characters and plot to choosing a point of view and crafting dialogue, these classes will give writers of any level the tools to start their stories and polish their writing. Courses will be provided remotely via Zoom - course information and participation instructions will be emailed directly to you in advance. Need help installing Zoom?
